Default Yet Another Tank Corps Badge Thread (Sorry)

Hi all. I know this question has been asked before and I have looked at many previous threads on these badges but still cannot make my mind up 100%. So for further opinions I submit these Tank Corps badges I have been offered. If anyone has anything to comment on authenticity it would be greatly appreciated. For what its worth both badges and sliders are "firm" but I'm questioning things like the difference in fonts, lack of voiding below the tank on the right hand badge and difference in slider length. Any comments welcome and many thanks to all.

The 1st badge [left hand side] looks good with all the voiding & thicker font, the other one not sure, could just of been a bad day at the office when made but although not having the typical '' ring spanner'' fault slight, differences could be concerning, probably not the one i'd pick out of the two, hopefully other more knowledgeable will confirm.
